Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry has hit back at critics who called the photos she shared of herself breastfeeding her son 'classless'.
The 21-year-old, who gave birth to son Lincoln Marshall Marroquin in November, uploaded two images to her Instagram account, which boasts more than 840,000 followers, yesterday.
She was stunned when negative feedback began rolling in, with one follower commenting on the intimate snaps: 'What's with all the boob pics?! We get it, you breastfeed! Geesh! Have some class woman.'
Another said sarcastically: 'You can't possibly feed a baby without snapping pics and posting on twitter . . . posting pics of breast feeding is classless.'
Kailyn was quick to respond to critics, writing on one of the pictures: 'Oh, but then do you cover YOUR face while you're eating though.'
In one of the photos she posted online, Kailyn is seen sitting in a chair nursing her baby boy, with his head covering most of her assets.
Another shows her posing for a happy family shot with her husband Javi Marroquin as she continues to breastfeed her baby.
According to Examiner.com, she was backstage filming the Teen Mom 2 reunion show when she took the photo of her little one nursing.
While some followers left offensive comments on her Instagram, which she seems to have since taken down, others defended her right to breastfeed her baby.
'I LOVE how your nursing in this picture, so cute!!' wrote one fan. 'I still BF my son who is almost 1 and its the best bond!! Your my favorite, and a great mom! [sic]'
Another said: 'This is exactly what we need in today's society!! This is NORMAL! We need a good example to show people that breastfeeding mothers have rights too. We need to normalize breastfeeding in public.'
Kailyn gave birth to her first son, Isaac, with ex-boyfriend Jo Rivera in January 2010 on the second second of MTV's 16 and Pregnant.
She and Jo broke up when Isaac was just a few months old, and she married her new love Javi in a sea-themed wedding in September 2012.
The Pennsylvania native, who works as a dental assistant, was heavily pregnant at the wedding, so she had designers from Alfred Angelo custom-make a gown to fit her baby belly.

omW! My Olympics boyfriend won a gold in biathlon today!!
Leonardo DiCaprio says "The Wolf of Wall Street" is "a cautionary tale," while "12 Years a Slave's" Steve McQueen says audiences were looking "for a challenging film." Jonah Hill, meanwhile, wrote a speech not because he thinks he's going to win but so he "wouldn't sound stupid."
Jonah Hill has already written an acceptance speech -- just in case. Matthew McConaughey was disappointed that Tom Hanks wasn't nominated because he wanted to hang out with him. And Lupito Nyong'o doesn't yet know what her Oscar nomination means for her young career.
Those were a few of the admissions that Oscar nominees, attending the Academy's annual luncheon Monday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, made as they appeared briefly in front of the press before heading into the hotel's ballroom.
Dallas Buyers Club star McConaughey said, "I wish Tom Hanks was in there [among the nominees]. It's kind of crazy that he's not. I'd like to hang out with him."
Asked about the so-called "heckler" who asked him at the Santa Barbara Film Festival why he had the right to play a transsexual, that film's Jared Leto said, "Heckle is a bad term. It was a debater, someone who wanted to take a public stand."
Wolf of Wall Street's Leonardo DiCaprio defended the decadent behavior in his film. "There's a lot of disgusting behavior. ... We wanted this to be a cautionary tale. It was a reaction to what happened in 2008. ... It was a giant Hieronymus Bosch painting. Martin Scorsese has never been a director who spoon-feeds the audience what the ramifications of these actions are. He purposely didn't cut away to the [victims]."
Hill, who worked for scale in Wolf, said he'd work again for scale in any Scorsese picture. "I wouldn't care. I would paint his house if he asked me to." Hill has prepared an Oscar speech, "just so I wouldn't sound stupid. The possibility of winning is so insane to me. ... It seems like a one in a billion chance that it would happen."
Blue Jasmine's Cate Blanchett accepted a compliment on her fancy outfits in the film and said, "They all had to go back by midnight. I think the entire costume budget was less than the [cost to purchase the] Hermes bag, which was also borrowed." Blanchett, who was asked no questions about the Woody Allen controversy swirling around the film, said the role "felt to me like a synthesis of my work on the stage and my work on the screen."
12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen dismissed charges that his film is too harsh to watch. "We've passed the $100 million mark, and that just proves that that's just not a question to raise anymore. It just shows you audiences are looking for a challenging film. Someone told me very early on, 'Steve, this movie is more important than you.' And I understood that and I took that with me. A great debate is occurring over something that's been lost for 150 years."
Nyong'o was asked what difference her supporting actress nom will make for her career. Her response: "I mean, It's a recognition of the highest -- everybody regards the Oscars as the ultimate stamp of approval, and ... I don't know. I guess we'll see."
Nebraska director Alexander Payne said it was hard to find his main character, and others might have done the role. "Not better than Bruce, but they readily came to mind: Henry Fonda, Walter Brennan ... Warren Oates, if he had lived. But not better than Bruce."
Several actors seemed surprised at how short the Q&A exchanges before the luncheon were. When his interview ended after just a few questions, Leto said, "That's it? What a tease!"
"ask me if i give a motherfuck ?!!" lets just talk about zayns tweet instead
Turn on your Twitter machine sometime after midnight Monday through Thursday, and you might notice a particular brand of dark comedy taking over your feed. The hashtag-based gags riff on topics like “#sadtoys,” where Twitter users worldwide weigh in with their own jokes, such as “Guess Who . . . Is the Father of Your Child,” “Strangers With Candy Land” or “Mr. Potato Famine.”
The cause of the sudden burst of crowdsourced humor is Comedy Central’s new late-night talk/game show “@midnight,” hosted by Chris Hardwick. As its name implies — being both an indicator of time slot and its own Twitter handle — it’s a show custom-made for the current state of interactive, social-media enabled TV viewers who aren’t content to be just a passive consumer of comedy.
The show is a half-hour slice of Internet life, which is thrown in front of a panel of comedians who feast on it with witty comments and humorous quizzes. A typical show might feature a video with the latest YouTube star of the day, or a dissection of something that went viral the night before (Pharrell’s hat during the Grammys, for example).
But the most popular part of the show — online, at least — is the segment called #Hashtagwars, where Hardwick throws out a topic for the three-comedian panel to riff on in sort of a joke lightning round. Hardwick, and the show’s Twitter account, also asks the audience to keep the game going. The gags on Twitter come from a mix of established stand-ups (Judah Friedlander, formerly of “30 Rock,” sometimes chimes in), up-and-comers and just regular funny folks at home.
Then @midnight retweets some of the good ones and shows the best tweet on the next night’s show. It’s a formalized riff on what is already a popular Twitter game, basically an online, pun-heavy version of Scattergories.
It shows off a model that could become more common in TV in the digital era, one that feels native to the inclusive crowd of the Internet instead of some cultural voice on the mount booming at you from the television.
And, @midnight deserves credit for pulling off a real feat of comedic achievement: Getting nine out of the 11 members of the brilliant 1990s MTV sketch comedy show “The State” reunited on screen on the Jan. 27 episode.
GLEE bosses are trying to convince One Direction and Simon Cowell to make a cameo in the show.
The hit musical series has already featured two of the British boyband’s songs.
But now they want the lads – Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson Liam Payne, and Zayn Malik – to become Glee stars.
And producers are trying to find a way of convincing their boss, Simon Cowell, 54, to appear with them when the show returns for its final series.
Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Schuester in the series, said: “We have been so fortunate to have some great cameos, and to have One Direction on would be great for the show.
Matthew Morrison, who plays Will Schuester in the series, said: “We have been so fortunate to have some great cameos, and to have One Direction on would be great for the show.
“They are not much older than High School age so we could have them as students. And I am sure the younger female cast members wouldn’t object to their presence either. Both my and Jane Lynch’s dream cameo is Simon Cowell. So maybe the boys could bring their manager.
“It would make great TV seeing Sue Sylvester and Simon Cowell go head to head.”
Everytime I try to leave, something keeps pulling me back, me back...
We've been wondering all weekend who was behind Dumb Starbucks: there was speculation it was Banksy, a rogue employee at Starbucks or comedian Nathan Fielder.
If you guessed it was Fielder of Comedy Central's "Nathan For You," turns out you were right. Fielder showed up at a press conference being held this afternoon at the Los Feliz location to out himself. Reporters asked him why he was doing this and the comedian answered: "the American dream." He also clarified that he does not believe Starbucks is dumb, "I like Starbucks. I appreciate everything they do."
Fielder has a reputation for doing stunts kind of like this. (Once he had a gas station offer a massive rebate for gas, except that customers had to go to the top of a mountain to get it.)
Fielder announced that he planned to open up a second location in Brooklyn and keep expanding indefinitely: "This one really caught on so I'm just going to ride it out."
He might run into some problems: if not from lawyers then from the health department. Just before the press conference, the Dumb Starbucks announced that county workers had paid them a visit and they would not be serving coffee for now.
I am not at all surprised - he is so deadpan and ridiculous. I love it.

Wait a second, guys—did CNN just accidentally give away the winner of this year's Best Actor Academy Award? It certainly looks that way at first glance: During a story about the factory that makes the Oscars, RS Owens, the news network aired an image of someone holding a nameplate announcing none other than always-a-nominee-never-a-winner Leonardo DiCaprio, who this year is nominated for his role as Jordan Belfort in Martin Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street. Does this mean DiCaprio is the official winner?
Not exactly. First off, voting for the winners hasn't yet concluded—according to the official Oscars website, it won't end until Feb. 25, just a few days before the ceremony on March 8. Secondly, according to this post from The Guardian, RS Owens has been making winning nameplates for every nominee in advance since 2010, to shorten the waiting time between winners receiving their statue and winners receiving the actual nameplate for the statue that states their name, winning category, and project. In other words: Every single nominee has one of these made for them, in the event that they do win the award. Just because this nameplate exists, it doesn't mean that DiCaprio will take home the coveted award next month.
Walkers on the streets of New York recently fended off walkers from "The Walking Dead".
As part of a guerrilla marketing promotion, actors were made up to look like zombies from the hit AMC series and placed below a grate in Manhattan's Union Square.
Unknowing pedestrians who stepped near or above the grate were met with zombified hands and arms reaching up from the ground below them.
"The Walking Dead" isn't the first TV series to use unorthodox street campaigns to try and scare up viewers, although things can go wrong when the public fails to get the gimmick.
In 2007, LED lights scattered throughout Boston, designed to spread the word about Cartoon Network's "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," unintentionally set off a very real city-wide bomb scare. Turner Broadcasting Systems, which owns the Cartoon Network, was ordered to pay a hefty $2 million fine because of the chaos caused by the promotion.
But it looks as though no one saw this latest marketing stunt as a sign of the zombie-apocalypse, although more than a few passersby initially screamed at the sight of the walkers before quickly laughing off the prank. Others just stared in confusion, as can be seen in the video.
Shia LaBeouf shows some love and support for the NYPD while touching down at LAX Airport on Monday (February 10) in Los Angeles.
The day before, the 27-year-old actor hide his face under a paper bag with the words “I am not famous anymore” while attending the premiere of his latest film Nymphomaniac at the 2014 Berlinale International Film Festival in Germany.
In case you didn’t know, Shia has been tweeting that exact phrase for the last month after he said he was retiring from public life.
Since sharing her story of growing up as a young trans girl in Marie Claire, Janet Mock has fought for the rights of trans women like herself to define their own stories.
It’s a truth she will passionately defend, as illustrated by her calling out Piers Morgan’s misguided interview attempt on CNN. She launched the hashtag #girlslikeus to encourage young trans women to discuss their shared experiences and now her groundbreaking memoir is about to take the UK by storm.
For Books’ Sake: From Redefining Realness, it seems that love – whether platonic or romantic – is at the centre of your work.
Janet Mock: I think love is something that I’ve always obsessed over growing up and it’s not an obsession I’ve gotten over. So I think it’s very much inherent, whether it’s in the podcasts, where it’s me and Aaron literally talking about that first year of my life, when I had been outed as a trans woman, and him standing besides me. He was very much pivotal in me doing that, having that affirmation from someone who perceived me as not less than, but as the greatest woman alive to him. And I never thought I’d had that, right?
Growing up as trans* is not something that you, yourself, take pride in and definitely not something that a man would see as a plus, or a positive thing, in a relationship. So I think that, having experienced that kind of love, I wanted to show young women that we are not just a tragedy, that we can have fulfilling partnerships and relationships and the quest towards that can be transformative, if you find the right partner who can go on that journey with you. So yes, I am very obsessed with love! This book for me was like a shattering down of this image that the media had made of me: ‘Janet Mock’, the black trans woman of colour who made it out.
FBS: One of things that struck me in your memoir was your honesty and your bravery as a survivor. Survivors of abuse often feel pressure to omit parts of their history. Did you feel you had to project a perfect life story to avoid being pathologised as being trans*?
J: I think one of the first things I learnt in terms of abuse, and dealing with sexual assault, is that I needed to be quiet about it and I kept that a secret. And, in turn, I kept a lot of things in my life, the bad things in my life, the traumatic things in my life, secret. I kept myself and my identity a secret. These are all things I learned. And having to unpack that, the memoir, the process of writing, really helped me to reflect on the things that were done to my body and to me, how I learned these behaviours and actions of silence.
And then sitting in that space alone, and transforming silence into something else, as Audre Lorde said, when we transform silence we become even more powerful. The things we thought would hold us down. Things that we thought people would judge us about, that we would judge ourselves about; it’s the sense of releasing all of that shame, so the story telling process has been a work in progress. I’m still a work in progress and I still have issues around all of these things. To be able to share that and know that there are other young women out there who have gone through these things, hopefully it will make them feel more comfortable about speaking up about that.
FBS: I think that’s so powerful, and I think that means a lot to so many people, so thank you for that.
J: Well, it was very scary to do so. You know, this book for me was like a shattering down of this image that the media had made of me: ‘Janet Mock’, the black trans woman of colour who made it out. There is a success story out there and it’s hard combating that media machine, because American media loves to build up heroes that they can then tear down.
So, instead of letting the media tear me down, I chose, instead, to be raw and honest in my experience so I am seen as a full person and a fully authentic self. I think that’s why I wanted to name it Redefining Realness – because that’s what authenticity is to me. Standing in my own truth, my own trauma, in my own triumphs as well. And so that was the purpose of that book, but it was a very scary, daunting process.
FBS: Were you under pressure to achieve?
J: I felt that I needed to be overeducated, I needed to be über accomplished, so I worked at People Magazine, I got a Masters degree from New York University, I worked at one of the top publications in America. I felt like I had to over accomplish and over extend in order to get the minimal amount of attention. I had to be the right kind of trans woman: articulate, educated, all of these things. So I decided to say, ‘I will not go by the politics of respectability and instead make space for the erotic in my book, space to talk about sex work, I will talk unapologetically about trans women of color in my book and trans sisterhood and trans womanhood.’ And all of these things that we’re told don’t exist or people just to choose to ignore.
FBS: Representations of trans* people seem be either totally detached, such as queer theory and academia, or they’re creepily involved, exposing every intimate detail. Do you see the memoir as an antidote to these models or perhaps a balance between the two?
J: [Trans* memoirs are] an apolitical tradition, so people don’t normally talk about anything beyond themselves. It’s quite a navel gazing genre. And so I chose to navel gaze a little bit but also contextualize my personal experiences in a broader light, in a broader framework. And say: yes I did sex work, but this is how it looks for all of us. So you can see the political nature and the systems of oppression that push trans women, specifically poor trans women, specifically poor trans women of color, into sex work.
And so that was my purpose with it, to shed light, a bright light, into the stories of other women who did not have the same concessions that I had. I had a scholarship to college, I had a home. I wasn’t on the streets trying to make money for rent. I was on the street trying to make money for transition surgery, which is insurmountable too, but I needed to be aware of that. And for me I also wanted a book that was accessible to trans women, young trans girls and women and feel like they could speak with more language and understanding with where they’re at in their lives, why they’ve gone through what they’ve gone through, what that looks like and how I made it through.
And at the same time I want it to be accessible to cis women, who may just like my hair and have been following me for a few years because of my curly hair and now they’re interested in reading my story. And by reading my story they’re getting the stories of a lot of marginalized trans women, and they can see the connections between cis womanhood and trans womanhood, and just womanhood in general. So I wanted a book that was educational and affirming and political. Our bodies are political bodies. They’re bodies that literally have to petition the state to be reflected in our own self. So I wanted to shed light on that without diminishing the personal struggle that I went through. I do hope it’s a balance between the two.
FBS: You’ve done so much already, but have you got any other creative goals?
J: I think for me, I know now that I want to write more books. I don’t know what the idea for those next books are. I do think that one of them would be about my young womanhood because Redefining Realness is very much about my girlhood. But it’s not so much about what it was like for me to live as a woman, where most people took me as a cisgender woman of colour. They didn’t see me as a trans woman. So, really exploring the years from 2001 or so until coming out publicly. I don’t really explore those things in the book and that really needs to be another book, because I still need time to reflect on that.
Beyond that, I want to do more media work. I would love to create a sitcom or a dramedy or something and being a show runner, telling our stories in a different kind of way. Creating culture, creating pop culture, I would love to go into that too. But these are just things that are floating around in my head. One day I would [love] to create a camp for trans girls, that would be amazing. That would be the legacy work I’d love to do, bringing a bunch of trans women and trans girls and share a week, or a weekend, in the summer together.
Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identity, Love & So Much More is released in the UK on 20th March and is available for preorder now. For US fans, order here.

Jeremy Clarkson and his petrol-thirsty band of brothers saw Top Gear improve on last Sunday's audience: the show has welcomed a further 200,000 viewers on Sunday and saw the series reach a 5.5 million average.
According to reported viewing figures the motoring series had 20.2% of the audience at 8pm.
Hosts Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond may have Thor and War Horse star Tom Hiddleston to thank for the rise as he took to their Reasonably Priced Car challenge.

Max, 25 - who met Nina when they both starred in a Buffalo fashion campaign over a year ago - is believed to have ended the relationship near the time his band The Wanted confirmed their split.
A source told the Sun On Sunday: 'They just wanted different things out of the relationship and had grown slightly apart.'
'It was hard for Max to dump Nina so soon after news broke that The Wanted are breaking up,' the source added: ''But he is being optimistic. He is looking at it all as an opportunity for a fresh start. He's not one to get down in the dumps about things.'
In October Max gushed about Nina in an interview with OK magazine, where he revealed they were friends for six months before things turned romantic.
‘She makes me laugh, She’s so funny and daft. She’s not at all high-maintenance – she just likes to have fun,’ he said. She’s just a mate and obviously, yes, she’s absolutely stunning.
‘She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen. She lights up the place and everyone loves her – all the boys, our security guard and our tour manager.’
But now the news of the split comes as no surprise as just last week Nina, 21, was spotted leaving a club in New York with Leonardo DiCaprio.
The pair were partying at Club Avenue until the early hours of Monday morning after the Super Bowl on Sunday.
The Wolf Of Wall Street star and Sports Illustrated model were spotted walking from the venue one after the other before piling into the same car and speeding off together.
They did their best not to be seen in the vehicle as Leo ducked down, while just Nina’s legs were visible in the back of the car. Leonardo, 39, is also supposed to be dating 21-year-old Toni Garrn, so perhaps the actor was merely giving Nina a lift home. Toni was flying solo just a few days later at the opening night of the 65th annual Berlinale
Two Direction - Mum of 1D Louis has twins… Ernest & Doris. ONE Direction heart-throb Louis Tomlinson is celebrating after his mum gave birth to twins she has named Ernest and Doris. The singer, 22, dashed to be with his mother Johanna Poulston, 40, after the pair arrived on Monday.
He already has four younger sisters — Lottie and Felicite and another set of twins, named Phoebe and Daisy. A source said: “Louis is over the moon. He met Ernest and Doris and fell in love with them. “Family is massively important to him so he was made up that he was not abroad and was able to meet them so soon after they were born. His sisters mean the world to him so he’s delighted to have two more siblings to spoil.”
Ernest and Doris were born prematurely at Barnsley Hospital, South Yorks, near Louis’ home town of Doncaster, but the babies and their mum are doing fine. Johanna has been with the twins’ father, Daniel Deakin, 30, for two years. She split from her ex, Mark Tomlinson, as Louis auditioned for X Factor in 2010.
A spokesman for Louis said: “Daniel and Johanna are pleased to welcome twins — a boy Ernest Rupert Atholl Deakin, 5 lbs 12oz, and a girl Doris Poppet Deakin, 4lbs 11oz.
“Daniel and Johanna would like to thank Barnsley hospital, their special care unit, the Embrace team and Jessops special care unit. “All the family are delighted.”
The timing of the birth was perfect for Louis as One Direction are on a three-month break after months of touring and shows. Louis, Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles have pencilled in just one public appearance — at the Brits next week.
OF COURSE HE IS OVER THE MOON, I am so thrilled about this and now he has a little baby brother too :')
Some people really want to walk in Kanye West’s shoes. The rapper’s new collaboration with Nike — his Air 2 Red October sneakers — sold out in hours Sunday (no surprise), and they’ve already hit eBay (also, not surprising). But the current bidding price for Yeezy’s kicks did manage to surprise us (as in, jaws on the floor): £10,000,000 or roughly $16.4 million.
Nike announced on Twitter Sunday that that shoes were on sale, retailing for $245. And they sold out so quickly that the eBay sales started almost immediately. The sneakers are all red and feature gold embellishments on the laces (not real gold, although for the price people are willing to pay, you’d think it was.)
The most ridiculous listing on eBay shows the top bid at more than 16 million bucks, but more sales have been popping up with “Buy It Now” prices as low as about £3,500.00 (about $5,748), which seems like a total steal by comparison!
How much are you guys willing to pay on shoes??
This is why Justin Bieber fans can't have nice things.
The wax figure of the 19-year-old pop star and (alleged) egg-thrower has been removed from Madame Tussaud's New York location. Is it because the company doesn't approve of all his antics over the past few weeks few months? Is it because they need to make a new one because no one knows what he looks like with a shirt on anymore? No, it's because his fans would not stop groping and man-handling Justin's statue.
The New York Post is reporting that because Justin's wax likeness has no barriers or ropes around it, it's been a fan free for all. This is their one chance to rub up on their idol, and the hordes of girls have been taking that opportunity and going to freakin' town. And that town is called Fondle-ville. And they are the mayors. See the pic above for an example.
All that hand-play and constant humping has led Justin's figure to be damaged and warped, and it "no longer does justice either to the star or to the attraction," according to Madame Tussauds.
General manager Bret Pidgeon told the NY Post that the damage from the fans and their frantic groping is "disappointing" but they will hopefully "welcome a new 'grown-up' Justin back to the attraction in the near future."
Well, they have to wait for Justin to actually grow up first. So let him cross that bridge before making anything new. And if they do make a new statue, they should probably put out a "No Humping" sign for the fans so this doesn't happen in the future. Yes, that rule should go without saying, but we now live in a world where it has to be said.
